Professional Development for Engineers

We help engineers achieve success and fulfillment — professionally and personally

Drive Success in a Rapidly Growing Industry

Engineers from the tech, civil, mechanical, chemical and nuclear spaces deal with constant change with ever-evolving technologies. Your engineers may be frustrated and overloaded with work or they may be burned out and playing it safe. Additionally, female engineers still face a great deal of adversity.

By prioritizing employee well-being through professional development programs, including Fast Forward, Fast Forward Women and Fast Forward DEI, engineering teams build deep connection and achieve greater success and happiness in their whole lives.

What We Offer

Programs to Increase Success and Fulfillment for Engineers

Fast Forward Training Program

For your engineering teams, the Fast Forward Training Program offers up to 10 x 90-minute interactive workshops, which can be customized based on the needs of your team.

The Fast Forward Training Program gives your team the insights and tools they need to set and meet ambitious goals; to prioritize professional and personal outcomes; and to improve resiliency, confidence and communication skills.

Bold Vision Workshop

In this game-changing session, your people will get a simple, science-backed exercise to play big, take risks and focus on what’s important in every area of their lives.

The Bold Vision workshop improves engagement, productivity and culture, building deep human connection among your entire team.

Fast Forward Women for Engineers

Women in the engineering industry face a variety of unique challenges.

Fast Forward partners with companies who recognize the imperative of gender equity and the benefit of setting women up to thrive and ascend.

Fast Forward DEI

People from diverse populations don’t often have the benefit of role models and sponsors in executive positions. They also must navigate unconscious biases and microaggressions.

Our diversity, equity and inclusion training program equips people from diverse populations to succeed and advance professionally and personally while showing up as their authentic selves.


Executive Coaching

Our seasoned Fast Forward coaches use their personal business experience and Fast Forward Group Power Principles and tools to ignite top talent.

We tailor each coaching engagement so your marketing and media leaders achieve meaningful growth professionally and personally.
